  1. That was my first step really 😂 I’m not one to tell people to get stuff but yeah do it! 😂
  2. Thanks! I find it’s got a bit more heft & weight to the sound compared to the EB modern ones
  3. I was a bit hesitant at first, but I think it "classes" it up a little bit haha!
  4. Yeah, a few dings here & there as usual but all pretty decent holding up well
  5. I got one!

      Ah that's amazing!! Body looks like mine, cept with the proper old school bridge + mutes. Really love the bound neck as well

  6. After a long(ish) search & after exhausting all other options including getting Ernie ball to make a new one, BFR's & five strings I finally got my hands on this exquisite bass. Via a private sale & at a decent price I've finally got one! Plays absolutely beautifully & weighs a tonne too! Fretboard was swapped a few years ago by a studio in London & new bound ebony fretboard installed. At first I wasn't really keen on the binding, but it's growing on me. Hipshot D Tuner installed (I have the OG tuner) but alas no original hardcore. This is my second ever vintage bass after my 72 Jazz & I've fallen in love! Unfortunately I don't think I'll be using her for every gig I'm hired for, but I will try my dammed hardest! Serial starts No. B00.

      I had GAS for one of them once. It didn't end well for my bank balance.

      And a short-scale (sigh).

      My 5HH was such that I didn't need to practise. I just opened the case and it would start to play.
      That's the mating call of a true musical instrument.

  9. New Overwater is all specced out apart from top wood!

    1. DiMarco


      European black walnut! yum!

    2. Phill


      That does sound nice! Still can’t make my mind up! It’s based off of the new hollow body single cut bass. 6 string fretted 👌

  10. Finally working on my specs for a new Overwater 😁😁

    1. Rich


      Ooh! Share plz? :) 

  11. Looking for a pedal bridge of sorts from a UK manufacturer, only finding American providers who don't ship to the UK!

    1. HazBeen


      Ikea shelf insert and some tweaking might work. Will cost an hour and 3 quid.

  12. It's been so long since I've been able to browse the forum properly! I've got a new update blog to share too 👍 https://www.phillcourtmusic.com/single-post/2019/11/16/Bassicly-Speaking-November-2019-Update

  13. I joined up to the "other" site and like you said Quilly just not very friendly IMO
  14. I do admire as a musician 😁 it is! the artist I'm working for is class so no worries there! Thanks for the help
  15. Thanks for the help with the driving licence title change guys & gals! My title will remain a mystery but if you like you can call me Lord for now 😂

    1. Teebs


      Yes, your worship!

      Pictures (of the licence), or it didn't happen! 😛

  16. Ive got to recreate this bass synth soon on a Sub Phatty! I'm close but just can't get the tone of it right 😩 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ob7vObnFUJc I'm not a huge Beyonce fan, but the baseline is pretty sweet
  17. Does anyone know who is currently playing bass for Rita Ora by any chance?

    3. Drax

    4. Soledad


      Hot player. And nowt wrong with Rita either. Respect.

  18. I'm in the exact same boat! Have to pick up key bass for an upcoming tour, would be great to share patches and help each other out (feeling a bit overwhelmed so dar)
  19. Just took delivery of the collectors Joe Dart edition of BGM plus this cool t shirt :)


  20. Glad I could help out Average White Band! They gave me a few goodies too 👌 hope he gets his Jazz back ASAP! 


    1. SpondonBassed


      Nicely done.

      Very nice indeed! :)

      Nice Phill! I know Freddy V the sax player very well and he mentioned the theft of the instruments, what a drag for Alan and Onnie, however I'm sure Alan was very glad to be leant such a killer instrument!

  21. Alan Gorrie is borrowing my Overwater for the Average White Band gig in Cardiff tonight, as his bass was nicked last night! Glad I could help out though!

  22. Just put my Moog Sub Phatty up for sale or swap 😏


  23. Ex demo Moog Sub Phatty bought last year. Mint condition with only studio use. does not include the original box (but includes manuals etc) so cannot ship. £550 OVNO or will swap for a Novation Bass Station II with cash my way. Cash/Bank transfer or PayPal on delivery/pickup. I can deliver within a reasonable distance. https://www.basschat.co.uk/forum/21-other-musically-related-items-for-sale/?do=add#
